Verdict

Loyalty is on a career-high mark after scoring at this track last month, but Byrony won off a 4lb higher mark here last year. She bounced back to form with a win at Goodwood on her latest start with Spa's Dancer behind. Blues Jazz has won six times on turf this season, but over shorter trips than this, and the vote goes to the progressive TAROOQ. He was a cosy winner at Lingfield a week ago and the manner of his victory suggests he can shrug off a 6lb penalty today. Reposer and Islesman have both won here this season and look best of the rest.
